LOS ANGELES (REUTERS) - Actor Robert Downey Jr's son has been arrested on suspicion of drug possession in West Hollywood, California, a Los Angeles County Sheriff's deputy said.

Indio Falconer Downey, the 20-year-old son of the Iron Man actor, was arrested on Sunday afternoon with what authorities believe was cocaine and a pipe used to smoke it, Sergeant Dave Valentine said.

Valentine said Downey was arrested after the car he was a passenger in was pulled over by a deputy. No one else in the car was arrested.

Downey posted bail of US$10,250 (S$12,778) and was released shortly after midnight PDT (0700 GMT). He has a court date set for Aug 29.
